Distribution of Drafts According to Author Gender

“Document Stats -- What is Going on in the IETF?”




Drafts come from these genders, 3 different genders in total.

  • 1434 drafts (76.11%) have male authors.
  • 739 drafts (39.23%) have unknown authors.
  • 240 drafts (12.74%) have female authors.

Wondering why the total is greater than 100%? Drafts with multiple authors may be counted multiple times, if the authors have different gender. Genders are determined by knowing some individuals, the rest are guessed by testing the first name via genderchecker.
